Acknowledge the Progress

I was chatting with someone today who has been working her way through a rigorous job search – with lots of activity and no offer yet. She was a bit discouraged – mostly because she didn’t know where she stood compared to others in her position.

So, I asked her to walk me through her approach to outreach, follow-ups, and even interviews. She believed that she was falling behind her peers. However, when she shared her actions and results – her progress was actually so much better than most. I shared this with her and it made her day.

Always take the time to acknowledge how far a person has come. You could be that person’s lifeline.

Have a great day,
